Boots No. 7 Christmas Opulence Palette & Highlighter

For Christmas, Boots No. 7 have launched a small range called Opulence which consists of a highlighter, lipstick and eyeshadow palette.

I got the eyeshadow and highlighter. The packaging is kind of 80s retro, no?:

Here is the highlighter £13.00.

The swatches:

Its a glittery highlighter – it is not fine shimmer, its all out GLIT. The coloured patches (in the red and blue) seems to just be an overspray to me as I noticed it wearing off.
Remember what I said – this is a truly glitter highlighter! If you don’t like obvious glitter, you won’t like this!

I do like glitter, so this is quite fun for me. When blended into the skin you can still see the glitter particles:

It is slightly gritty – no doubt because it has obvious particles of glitter in it. Just be aware this isn’t your conventional buttery smooth highlighter. A party/body highlighter methinks.

The shadow comes in a randomly shaped creation:

I like the colours in it a lot – white, black, the blue and brown make perfect sense to me. Swatches:

Once again a glittery texture especially to the brown. The palette is nicely pigmented though, creamy to touch.

On my tired eye:

That brown has really grown on me although you have to be careful – I felt it settling into my fine lines.

Blue and yellow – so 80s!:
